"This was the tournament of Total Football, a showcase for the majestic talents of Johan Cruyff and Franz Beckenbauer, who shone in the spotlight vacated by Pele, leading their respective Dutch and West German sides through to a Final showdown in Munich on 7 July 1974. As against Ferenc Puskas's Magnificent Magyars 20 years earlier, it was West Germany who emerged triumphant, coming from behind to claim their second world crown at the expense of the favourites.

'Tip and Tap' the FIFA World Cup 74 MascotsIt was a Final that began in sensational fashion. The Netherlands, who had scored 14 goals and conceded just one in six games previously, went in front before the Germans had even touched the ball. Cruyff, the waif-like wizard in the No14 shirt, set off on a dribble from the centre circle, stopped only by a foul from Uli Hoeness in the penalty box. The first spot-kick in a FIFA World Cup™ final. With little over a minute on the clock, Johan Neeskens made it 1-0.

The Dutch were toying with their rivals like a cat with a mouse but on 25 minutes the Germans, their pride piqued, regained parity as Paul Breitner converted another penalty after Bernd Hoelzenbein had gone down under Wim Jansen's challenge. With Berti Vogts managing to contain Cruyff, Gerd Muller, Golden Shoe winner four years earlier, then ensured West Germany's name would be the first etched on to the new FIFA World Cup Trophy when, two minutes before the break, he turned on a Rainer Bonhof cross and shot low past Jan Jongbloed."

Panini World Cup 74 Germany Sticker Packet

The second edition of Panini's World Cup Sticker album came out in time for the 1974 Germany World Cup. The style and appearance of the Panini Munich 74 World Cup Germany Sticker Album is very close to that of the last edition in 1970.

Similar to last time, the first page shows stickers for the FIFA Logo, the new World Cup Trophy (last time's winners Brazil got to keep the Rimet Cup), the Official Poster, Official Logo and the Mascots. The Mascots are of a short dumpy chap and a tall thin feller; they remind us a little of Laurel and Hardy! Over the page there is a large photograph of the Rimet Cup and a couple of paragraphs about it, facing on the other page is an introduction to Jules Rimet, who had been FIFA president for 26 years. From here, the next 8 pages look back at previous tournaments, stickers include a the tournament logo, winning team photo and several photo stickers of important players. The final page of this section features a large photo of the new World Cup Trophy.

'Tip and Tap' or 'Laurel and Hardy' as we'd rather refer to the tournament mascots, get a whole page of them playing football, 9 stickers in total there, then the stadiums are over the page. Each gets a sticker, brief intro and space to fill in some scores.

Germany as the hosts get the first national team page. The club badge is the first sticker to appear, still not yet in it's eventual 'foil' style though. There is also a manager sticker, team photo sticker and national mascot. Most teams are allocated a double spread with 14 football sticker spaces, however some teams only get one page, such as Australia and Haiti.
